    13. 13. Excel as an Analysis Client
    15. 15. Self-Service BI with PowerPivotExcel + Analysis Services + SharePointEnables the working in Excel but mitigates the “spreadmart” pitfalls:• Use Analysis Services (AS) as a hidden engine•Instead of no engine• Share via SharePoint, accessible by all AS clients•Instead of “deploying” via email• Formal data refresh on server•So data doesn’t get stale, and users don’t have to make effort at updating• Allow IT to monitor•So it’s not all rogue• Provide path to more rigorous implementations•Can be upsized to Analysis Services
    16. 16. How Do You Get PowerPivot?For Excel 2010:• Download the add-in from www.powerpivot.com• Get 32-bit or 64-bit version, depending on your version of Office (notWindows)• Run the installerFor Excel 2013:• Requires Excel ProPlus retail product under volume license, or an Office 365ProPlus, Enterprise E3 or E4 subscription• It’s still in add-in, installed but not activated by default• Same goes for Excel version of Power View

    24. 24. SQL Server Analysis ServicesTwo Modes:• Multidimensional (was the only mode until SQL Server 2012)• Tabular (the SSAS version of PowerPivot)Both modes query-able by various clients:• Excel• Excel Services• Reporting Services• PerformancePoint• Even PowerPivotOnly Tabular mode is query-able by Power View• Power View wedded to BISM, so PowerPivot on SharePoint works too• Let’s talk about Power View now…24
